Eliminate compromise in your race tire.

The Grand Prix 4000 S II is even grippier, more durable, and faster than its predecessor. That's because Continental is able to improve their exclusive Black Chili compound just a little bit every year, thanks to their continued dedication to research and development.

What is Black Chili? It's a unique rubber formula with an ultra-dense construction and high silica content, allowing it to deliver outstanding grip and blazing fast speeds. This cutting-edge formula is also optimized for reliability and longevity, making it a great choice when both performance and durability are top priorities.

The GP 4000 S II also features Conti's patented Vectran puncture protection breaker. Vectran was originally developed by NASA in the construction of space shuttles and suits, and Continental has brought its otherworldly lightweight protection to bike tires, making these lightweight tires impressively flat-resistant.

All in all, the GP 4000 S II is Continental's most advanced racing clincher yet, with a truly unique blend of speed, durability, and, now, aesthetics. Thanks to the high-tech materials and years of testing and development, the GP 4000 S II delivers low rolling resistance and superb handling with exceptional puncture protection and higher mileage performance than a typical race tire.

The Grand Prix 4000 S II features a three-ply 330 TPI casing. Kevlar folding bead. Max inflation is 120 PSI. Claimed weight is 205 grams (700c x 23mm)

Gold Standard

Continental is still the gold standard in cycling tires. I use them on all 4 of my bikes. Gatorskins on my commuter bike, 4 Seasons on my winter road bike and these on my race bikes. The ride quality is superb. The handling is excellent. These won't last as long as the Gatorskins or 4 Seasons but that would be true of any premium tire. Get them on sale and they become a good value.

Running 28s on a Specialized Roubaix (2014 carbon frame) they rubbed. When calipered at 100psi they read 32mm. Changed to the 25s and had perfect clearance. The 25s measured 27mm at 100psi.

1400 miles in 6 months (40-100 F) on smooth to chipped surfaces with occasional pot holes

Very favorable impression

I bought these to replace a set of Schwalbe Marathon Plus tires specifically because I was looking to reduce weight and rolling resistance. Based on research, this tire seemed to check both of those boxes while still providing reasonable puncture resistance.

These tires run incredibly smooth and effortless. As for puncture resistance, I just returned from a weeklong bike trip covering 500 miles of rural roads littered with sharp rocks and steel belted tire shards and didn't have one puncture. I even did a little gravel riding (less than 10 miles). I cannot comment on traction in the rain as I plan to use my Schwalbes for winter commuting, however due to the low weight and very low rolling resistance, I very highly recommend these tires for any type of distance riding (multiple day trips, or centuries), they exceeded my expectations.

Great tire for 2018

Conti GP 4000 S II, great all around tires. I've been using these for racing and riding for the past two years. I would say I get about 2000-3000 miles out of a tire, so they do last a good while. They handle great and are nice and fast.

They also provide very good puncture protection for a high performance tire. I know there are other 'racing' tires on the market, but they are very light and thin and certainly put you at risk for flats. From my past experience, there are few things that take you out of a race as fast as a flat tire.

If you balance price, performance and protection I don't think there is currently a better tire on the market.

Very much improved product
by Uphillcyclist

I've ridden Conti 4000's for 20 years. The older product used to dry rot quite quickly. The new tire holds 10X better thanks to their newer compound. I've ridden just about every tire on the market and find Conti's to be the most comfortable ride compared to rolling resistance. I ride over 10,000 miles per year and know a good product when I use it.

A great all around tire with excellent durability
by SFBiker

This is very predictable tire. I performs great on the dry and on the wet.

I really value the wear like predictability. I typically get about 1500 miles from

a pair of these tires. I weight about 175lbs and I i climb about 100K ft a year.

After abandoning other brands since they were very unpredictable as to there

wear out cycle, these are the only tires I will run. I ride about 1500 miles a year.

Road riding 4-6K year x 16 years...this is my favorite tire for all around performance. Good handling, long wearing, puncture resistant. Almost a race tire but lasts longer. I always come back to these tires.

I run the Continental Grand Prix S II road tire on three of my four road bikes. They simple are the best tire for the money. Good rolling characteristics, puncture resistant and long lasting. I have tried other brands with no where the success of these fine tires. Highly recommended for your road cycling both racing and training.

I have been riding on continental tires for many years. This is my first time with the 4000 II tires, size 25. They ride smooth, corner great and no flats after 1200 miles. I highly recommend these tires, especially when they are on sale!

No more flats! I switched to these 5 years ago on mine and my wifes bike. I done run them till you see wind, but 2500 plus, depending on when a big race falls and on issues. Probably not the lightest but Im not the fastest either.

High quality fast riding affordable tires for everyday use.
by Jim MCCloskey

Riding five days a week requires an above average set of tires. The Continental Grand Prix, 4000 S IIs, made through a Bike Tires recommendation, fit the bill. These 25cc tires, as in the product description, hug the road, providing a high sense of assurance on well paved to broken pavement terrain. I have used these for a month and am impressed with the feel when on riding a flat, descending, and cornering. Being able to inflate these at a lower psi allows me to take on more varied roads and surfaces than with prior brands of tires. I look forward to using these for many months.
